Australians will be able to buy Samsung's Galaxy A5 and A3 when they launch in Australia early March.
Samsung’s Galaxy A5 and A3 represent a shift in the company’s direction as it tightens its focus on smartphone design.
The two smartphones are the first from Samsung to have metal unibodies and both measure a slim 7mm in thickness.
Many consider the A3 and A5, along with the Galaxy Alpha, to act as precursors to the upcoming Galaxy S6 flagship. Samsung has hinted in promotional material the smartphone's design will incorporate metal.
Both smartphones are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, have 16GB of internal storage, support expandable microSD memory and have 5 megapixel front facing cameras.
Leading the range is the Samsung Galaxy A5. The 5-inch smartphone has a 1280x720 AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel camera and a 2300 milliamp-hour battery.
Its A3 sibling has a 4.5-inch AMOLED display with a lower 960x540 resolution, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera and a 1900 milliamp-hour battery.
Carriers Telstra, Vodafone and Optus will sell the Galaxy A3, while Vodafone is the only one to range the Galaxy A5.
Outright pricing for the A3 and A5 has been set at $499 and $599 respectively, and the smartphones are expected to go on sale from 5 March.
